Very little water is needed during the winter. I overwatered a few of mine last year while indoors and they all rotted come spring time. So my suggestion is to water very lightly, when the soil is completely dry then give it some water but I wouldn't recommend more than that.

And yet somehow, the amazing Vicki keeps hers in water in the basement all winter and accomplishes this:

banana growing in water

I love a challenge!

Are they sitting in water logged soil? What's your soil mix? Brown & mushy isn't good.
